Traded in my 2014 Dodge Charger R/T AWD for a 2018 Dodge Durango GT AWD... its loaded, sunroof, Beats, and captains chairs. Only thing is doesn't have is the rear seat entertainment. Needed more room for the girlfriend and kidos. Love this thing. Already started modding...

Very nice. Love the spaciousness and off-roadability I've seen in the Durangos. I've been eyeing a new Durango R/T with the Tow N Go package. Now I'm just trying to find a way to reconcile my budget with its arrival. ;)

I am looking at purchasing a travel trailer within the next year. I have debated with a Durango R/T Tow & Go, Durango SRT392, Ram 1500 G/T, or a Ram 2500. I keep going back and forth. I love my Laramie now, but with 3.21 rear gear and 22-inch wheels it can only pull about 7,100 lbs.

I'm partial to the Durango with the 5.7L and Tow N Go package. It offers slightly better fuel economy than the larger displacement and the goodies that come with the Tow N Go package (making it a $5K option) are borrowed from the SRT model. It's the best of both worlds. I think the brakes, suspension and exhaust are all improved over the standard tow package. I think it's even got a transmission cooler. Apart from that, it has enhanced wheel arches and a unique rear fascia. I'd hate to omit this option package when it comes time to place the order. Just my 2 cents... ;)

My 2018 Ram 3500 Dually 4WD Cummins pulling our 19,000 lb. 45' long toy hauler, and my 2019 Ram 2500 4WD 6.4 Hemi pulling our 5,000 lb. boat. A 3rd Mopar joins these hard working trucks next month when I pick up my new 2021 Dodge Challenger RT Scat Pack 1320.

DECEMBER 31, 2021 EDIT: Just added my new Challenger 1320 and Durango RT Tow N Go. Go Mopar!

We just purchased a 2021 Durango RT TNG on Friday, it even matches my new Challenger 1320 with the performance hood and F8 Green paint. Drives beautifully and sounds totally awesome.

Wife's 2015 Durango RT AWD (profile image) with recently new tires (32" general grabbers this time). Bought used with 21k miles now has a little over 70k. Had every option for the time except for rear seat DVD. Pretty much all miles have been with a larger tire on stock suspension.

My 2015 Ram 1500 Laramie (fuelly sig info). Bought with 98k now has 136k. Seems to have a new, minor antifreeze leak I need to track down...She's a heavy girl with gear in the ramboxes. About every option as well but non-air suspension.

The durango will eventually be replaced with a poor mans version of the Wagoneer (if dodge/ram ever get one). My truck will eventually be replaced by a 5th gen Ram or 4.5 gen power wagon.

Purchased a set of Demon 18"x11" and 18"x4.5" for my 1320. Yes, the rears stick out, but have plenty of clearance and will only be used at the drag strip; mounted some huge sticky Nitto NT05 315/40R18 drag radials on the rears and Mickey Thompson Sportsman's on the front runners. Hoping these will hook up with minimal warm up, at least less than the Nexen's need...

Compliments.
Well done.
